    Safe for Solo travelers but they can't arrange transports as have no major concierge system. Rooms are pretty clean and staff is courteous. Sometimes the language is barrier but its workable mostly staff can speak English and Hindi.

    Looo elsewhere”

    Only nice thing is the view, which is somewhat blocked unless you get the premium suites. Service is mediocre; food is bland (how does a South Indian restaurant make bad sambar? find out here), rooms are not clean. Serviced by teenage boys who are well meaning but need more training. Sometimes aggressive with wanting to "help" you when you don't need it and tell them so. They try to help anyway, which was annoying. If I ever stay in Rameshwaram again, I will book another hotel.

    Electric shock from Geyser! ”

    Hotel is good, food was nice.. it was clean & location is very near to temple. But I have two issues 1. There was an electric problem with geyser, it was giving mild shocks whenever it was switched on, after multiple retries the whole power went off for that room(Room No. 106) we had to take cold shower - it was okay in summer's weather but after complaining about it we got to know the staff knew about the issue before, but they did not inform us or they did not give any other room. 2. Very limited options with TV - it has only Tamil channels, would like to see more options.

    Remarkably clean and hygienic Hotel in Rameswaram ”

    Stunningly interior decorated hotel and surprised to see the way they maintained it in a coastal region. We stayed in two bed family room and it was very comfortable. Mitsubishi Air Conditioner transformed the room into igloo , bathroom with 24 hr hot water, good supply of toiletries were all good things that demands word of appreciation. Waiter in Dining need to be more attentive especially buffet bowls are empty as if staff is going to increase the Net profit of the owner by another .005%. We had a breakfast in which Idly, Oothappam, Vada, Vermicilli, Bread/butter/jam , Cerals, Caffe and Tea were kept. But oothappam and vadai was in short supply. Considereing decency we satisfied with the available items. But a Manager or some one came mildy scolded the waiter and asked him to prepare and serve vada and uthappam. Nice gesture. Parking lot is ample but the hoarding Parking at Owners Risk is an irresponsible one since it is like washing their hands about security of the vehicle.

    Horrible Stay - Poor Customer Service”

    the Location

    It's been a real worst experience for me. Poor Customer Service and horrible front desk professionals. This hotel staff doesn't know the meaning of service & professionalism. Arrived at hotel at 12 am and it took almost 2.5 hours to allocate a room with all requisites. Check-in process has been a nightmare and none of the prerequisites has been honored. I would recommend other travelers to look for a better hotel at a cheaper price in town.

    Good view of the sea. There are these fishermen next to the hotel who show you some coral for a reasonable price. Good for family adventures

    Very comfortable. Good restaurant and hotel staff. Morning coffee could be served earlier and hotter. Since a lot of people wake up early to go to the temple. Early Morning beverages rather than kettle coffee/tea would be nice.

    Some important gaps ”

    Room quality, Hotel Location

    Overall the stay was pleasant. There are important gaps i their facilitiies - the WIFI is not provided in the rooms - but only in the main lobby and restaurant, where too it does not work for long periods. Secondly the food is not well cooked. It is wholesome, but badly cooked eg the sambar is as thin as rasam and of the same colour. There is very little variety in the buffet breakfast. The parathas are not properly baked and have very little filling. (the aloo paratha had very little aloo). Even the a la carte dishes are not cooked upto normal taste. The kadai vegetable I ordered hardly tasted like the normal one we eat

    A Very Bad Experience”

    I will deff not recommend this hotel to anyone, although its perk is check in and check oit anytime. In terms of clealiness, i will give 0. Very poor maintenance of room and there was foul smell in all the rooms. I've booked 3 family rooms and they were not able to do anytg abt it instead gave us a spray. Besides, their staffs are not well trained and very arrogant in all aspect. They were good during my last stay, they failed to maintain their standard. Ita a never return hotel.
